What Exactly Is Self Storage?
Simply put, self storage is a service that offers you all the extra space you need. Our world-class facilities across Greater Manchester feature a range of clean, dry and secure storage units that you can rent out to store all your business or household items that you don’t have space for.
Whether you need long or short-term storage, Storage World offers a variety of storage options and flexible lease agreements so you’ll only rent the amount of space that you need for the time that you need it. Storage units are also equipped with advanced security measures, making them more secure than your friend’s spare room or a remote warehouse.
What Does A Self Storage Facility Look Like?
Self storage units come in a range of sizes, from compact storage lockers to large warehousing spaces. Our secure units are neatly laid out inside our purpose-built facility. Each of our facilities is manned by one or two friendly staff members during office hours and can usually be accessed outside of these normal office hours with a fob tag or passcode.
Once inside, you can make your way to your unit using our free trolleys and lifts for added convenience. Storage units are locked with the customer’s key, to which they are the sole holders. A quick tug on the door will open the unit, unveiling a wide, galvanised steel room that is clean, dry and brightly lit.
What Is Self Storage Used For and Who Can Use It?
Storage units are incredibly versatile spaces that can be used for a number of purposes. At Storage World, we help a range of different people, from new homeowners and start-ups to growing families and large corporations.
